“Pictorial Presentation" --- Sold

You have witnessed the evolution of my still life painting with Chinese characters. I feel satisfied with my today's painting. The character and the still life setup are combined more naturally. The character in this painting means "a picture". So I put it in a format of a painting scroll. I feel happy about the subtle value and color changes in the background. Even this painting is only 5" x 7", but it gives the impression of a large painting. As a matter of fact, I will do some large paintings with this scheme. With my recent painting practice, I feel I have gained more freedom. Now I can go beyond alla prima, and I am not restricted by the physical setups in my shadow box. I like to create a mood. I like David Leffel's work. Every one of his painting shows a mood. I want to be there too.

Gorgeous design and such an original concept. I love the pink ribbon. So important in the painting...a pop of "modern" color amid all the natural colors.

Loved how the pink ribbon and the urn repeat the middle shape area of the symbol. Great balance! Beautiful as always!
